Updated: Oct 18, 2020
Happy Monday folks
Fall color is peaking here in the Midwest, but we've been blessed with some beautiful weather this past week. A few albums that I've been patiently awaiting (or rather impatiently) were released: As Long As You Are by Future Islands and All Love Everything by Aloe Blacc. Both are fantastic and I picked my favorite songs from each to add to the list this week.
A song I was not expecting but was pleasantly surprised by was Better Than We Found It by Maren Morris. Country singers typically stay out of the political spotlight or are viewed as a whole as leaning far-right in their views. Better Than We Found It speaks about the consequences of our actions and that our decisions, and whether we decide to be united and speak up or stay silent and do nothing, will be remembered one way or the other.
Two more favorites are Blue and How by Swedish artist, Elina. Her pure, clear voice is so refreshing to the ears next to much of the over-produced music being released these days.
